    I'd like to use Plex from my phone or other devices but it won't work if , the computer that is set up, is in sleep mode. One day I turned off the sleep, on the same machine, and I had easy access from my phone and Mac , at work. . The machine I want to reach has Win 10.

    The port forwarding must be ok because I was able to access the computer while not sleeping.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks

    So you just have to go to Control Panel > Power Options and set the machine to use High Performance. Then it won't sleep. Additionally you can run "powercfg /h off" to delete the hiberfil.sys which takes up a lot of space.

    Understood, but is it ok to not sleep?

    It's perfectly OK. Some people prefer that the machine doesn't stay online while they are away, in that case don't do it.
